    Default A simple way too stop some spam Email?

    Make it illegal to sell CDROM with email addresses on.

    You only have to do a search with search engines to find out who sells these.

    the spammer will find other ways to swap addresses.

    the only way to stop spam is to not use email :-)

    Well yes, but people who harvest emails are a bigger problem. And also, CD is just one method of transport. You can email a lot of addresses in one compressed file. As a test, I created a file in Excel with 2000 email addresses (not F1 users, don't panic, I made them up and copied them).
    The plain text file was 52kb. Compressed, it was so small it practically made room on the disk (4kb). That means a million emails are very emailable in one file, or could fit on a floppy.
    Mind you, you'd get 600 million on a CD, which is close to every email address out there, probably.
    I like your motive, but not your solution. Keep them coming.

    Those comments (below) are like telling people not too open attachments, and they still do, and they get the virus from it,

    I felt my original posting was a bit strange, but I feel it is getting to the stage were we should try anything and everything.

    I must say "clear net" is doing a dam good job at filtering out the spam mail so I never see it, it puts all the spam mail in a folder at (clear) called "spam" belive it or not, just that now and again one slips past.

    Now and again I have to go to http://www.clear.net.nz and log onto "webmail" to check it out.
